Euphorbia lactea Ghost

Buy now, pay later with


Euphorbia lactea Ghost is an unusual looking kinda cactus, but he's all the rage. He looks like all the colour has been drained out of him and has been left to look like a ghost! Hence the name Ghost.

He is creamy/greyish and looks like a classic cactus out of a western movie with its upright look and spiky stems off to the side. These guys are low maintenance and prefer neglect rather than too much love so if you are just starting your plant journey this might be your perfect match. 

Originating from tropical regions Ghost is tolerant of wet and humid conditions and prefers partial shade in the garden or on the balcony. They add a wonderful accent to any desert garden or choose to shop me with a fancy pot and place me on your coffee table where your friends will be asking "where did you get that?"

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: Great in a pot at an entrance or as a feature plant in a cactus garden 

  • I grow to: 3-6m high, 40cm wide 

  • Where to place me: I do best when I have a nice bright indirect light 

  • Watering conditions: Give me a good deep soak when my soil is dry to touch
  • Soil Conditions: I love a well-draining soil mix 

    Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.
